Black Friday 2012 - I bought a Sear Craftsman 22" 179cc Dual Stage for circa $429.

Tomorrow - it's on sale for $399 for Black Friday 2016.

I gave a review on this snowblower:

For people that get under 12" snow each time - it's a bargain - better than a shovel. It has served me faithfully thru several storms here in NYC these 4 years.


(Update: Price went back to normal: $559 - the $399 was a Black Friday Special for 2 days)

Picked up a bigger larger snowblower.

Actually - after this Jonas storm of Jan 2016 - 28" inches - figured it was time for a larger snowblower. Picked up a used one 250 cc - here's the story/picture of the work needed for the replacement

But I would still recommend the Craftsman for $399. It's a heck of a deal for a person with a smaller snow fall.
